Mermaid in the Middle of Downtown

Dress: Body Central/ Earrings: Body Central/ Bracelets: Body Central / Shoes: Rugged Wearhouse 

Who says you need an ocean and a talking lobster named Sebastian to recapture the essences of a mermaid? I succeeded in doing it with this jersey knight hi-low dress, in sea green, matching stud earrings and silver bracelets.

 I wore this dress to a late lunch with my family and later shopping with my mom and aunt. I can't tell how you many times I was complimented on it. Well, actually I can. It was something like 845458124253. Okay, so maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but it was still a lot.

This fabulous little frock came from Body Central, as did my earrings (on sale for only 99 cent) and my bracelets.

Sometimes when I go to post looks on the blog, I feel as if they are too simple or need some extra flair, but I've come to realize that often less really is more. Plus, pieces like this dress often speak well for themselves, without extra bling and accessories. What do you think, is it possible to over accessorize?


  1. I love the neutral sandals--they go really well and accent the brightness of the dress! I bet you were complimented a lot, you deserved it!
